Rome, Georgia – April 20, 2010 — Be Someone, Inc., national tour goes to Rome, Georgia. Beginning Saturday May 29 & 30, 2010 students, parents and pastors in Rome will be asked to get in the game and think like a champion.
Be Someone founder Orrin Checkmate Hudson is an award-winning strategist and motivational speaker who broke racial barriers in 1999 in Birmingham by becoming the first African American to defeat the reigning Alabama State Chess Champion .
Gaining national recognition for his innovative crime prevention and educational program, Be Someone, Inc. ( www.besomeone.org ) Hudson has become an internationally renowned speaker-motivator. In July, 2009 Hudson won top honors at the World Open10 minutes blitz under 1700 chess championship in Philadelphia.
Be Someone has demonstrated over the past several years the power of teaching positive and motivational methods to inner-city youth. Hudson’s unique methods empower youth; showing them how to think it out rather than shoot it out, to push pawns not drugs and be a successful member of society.
His newest book, “One Move at a Time”, (available on www.besomeone.org) is a comprehensive guide on how to play chess and is packed with success strategies and how-to tips readily understood by students and adults alike. Hudson has incorporated the time tested success strategies of chess as the fundamental tools of his highly successful youth chess clinics and classes.
Currently on a 50 state tour, Hudson has taught more than 20,000 students how to win at chess, and at the game of life. Be Someone students, comprised mostly of at risk teens, have faced off with college students, many of whom were experienced chess players. Through Hudson’s coaching, motivational style and winning strategies his students have won statewide chess competitions and three consecutive city-wide chess championships.
As a former Alabama State Trooper, Hudson feels it is important to give back to students in Rome, Georgia by reminding them ,”the only thing that can take you to your goals is your mind”. Hudson continues to reach out to at-risk youth in Atlanta and across the United States. The Be Someone National Tour is sponsored by Kingdom Church International Pastor Rondie & Jennifer Goode at KCI, 5415 Old Calhoun Rd., Adairsville Rome Ga. 30162.

“These young people will one day be our country’s leaders. It is up to us to teach them the secrets of success now, to enable them to live fuller and richer lives. The Greatest crime in the world is the failure to develop one’s potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself, but the world.” Orrin C. Hudson
